Elon Musk is changing manufacturing, and how cars are made.

His compact in-house assembly saves manpower, and
. . . a good portion of third-party involvement along with shipping costs.
Traditional automakers will have a tough time competing with that,
. . . in the EV (electric vehicle) market, and
. . . won’t be able to compete much longer with an equivalent product
. . . in the ICE (internal combustion engine) car market
. . . due to their sheer complexity.
One on one, their construction model is different,
. . . seats are made in one place,
. . . engines in another, and
. . . for EVs, batteries still another.

Example: Kodak, a giant corporation, built a complex system to take pictures, and
. . . made huge profits doing it.

All of a sudden, digital cameras come along,
. . . but Kodak wasn’t worried, or even able to transition out of making,
. . . all those chemicals and mechanical cameras.
So, what happened? Their goldmine became a curse.
. . . What do you do with all that assembly, the workers, and obsolete photo papers?
. . . Well, you try to keep your cash cow and balance between the two while trying to hold up both ends. But you’ll never be able to compete with someone making just digital cameras,
. . . who doesn’t have the massive overhead you do.
